BELLE GLOS 2012 PINOT NOIR "LAS ALTURAS" SANTA LUCIA HIGHLANDS 750mL

Located in one of the highest plantable sites in the Santa Lucia Highlands of Monterey County, this pristine bench offers the Las Alturas Vineyard cool, coastal days with consistent sunshine and a foundation of Gloria sandy loam soil. The high elevation, up to1200 feet, and southern locale of Las Alturas Vineyard is slightly warmer by day and cooler by night with abundant sunshine and less wind than the northern portion of the appellation. All of these favorable conditions work to enhance the phenolic profile of each berry. When planting this vineyard, various Pinot Noir clones and rootstocks were matched to the most fitting soil types and slopes. Yields are deliberately kept low in order to augment the fruitís intensity. Dense, dark garnet in color, the aromas of juicy dark fruit, moist soil, vanilla and coco burst out of the glass. The palette is so rich that it can almost be chewed on. Flavors of pie filling, plum, cured meats and root beer enliven the senses. This wine has structural integrity, great depth, and the balanced acidity leads to a provocatively supple finish.
